I'm probably a bit redneck, but think it has little to do with what you drive.
If my folks would have wanted to give me that I would have said can I have the 30k and get what I want and keep the rest?
I would have hated trying to put gas in that thing when I was in college!!!!!!!!!!! I never had a single cab, but my brother did, in our experience we would never buy a single cab again. No room for stuff no room for people. I'd say you got a smart kid.
